“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due when it is in the power of your hands to do it.” Prov 3:27

Our Mentors have a passion for women, who have lost their way, have failed, or feel unloved and unwanted.  They need a sister, or friend, or mother who will believe in them.  It is our desire to invite the women to see an Almighty God who will accept and love them where they are.  That’s what He did for us!
